Export

In order to maintain economic stability and ensure sustainable development, it is of great importance that our exports are not affected by cyclical changes, that global threats are transformed into opportunities, and that the share of Turkey and the Kilis province in particular reflects the potential of world exports.

 

For this purpose, primarily in the production of high level branded products added value for the development of exports in Kilis, the development of product diversity by supporting R&D activities and increase their share in the export of these products, quality and branded Turkish products, mainly to the Middle East country, in foreign markets it is important to promote and market with customer-oriented and dynamic techniques and to support all these areas.

 

Kilis Province, has a significant export potential for Turkey in terms of border trade. Located in the confluence of the Turkey’s Mediterranean Region and the Southeastern Anatolia Region,  close to Mersin and Iskenderun ports and proximity to the border with neighboring Syria having many advantages. This is also seen from the increasing export realizations over the years. As can be seen from Graph, provincial exports, which were realized as $ 45 million in 2014, increased significantly in 2015 and 2016, reaching $ 82.1 million and $ 105.2 million, respectively.

 

The acceleration in this 3-year period in 2017,  declined to $ 71.2 million. The decline observed in 2017 is the result of factors such as the civil war in Syria and the geopolitical risks involving problems with Northern Iraq. Despite the decline in 2017, exports recovered by 13% over in 2018, reaching to $ 80.8 million.

Looking at the data in Table below, trade with Kilis and other Middle Eastern countries other than Syria and Iraq is almost non-existent, with some (Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan) unfortunately no commercial activity is observed. For the Kilis economy, which is highly affected by the current political crisis in Syria, it is vital to increase trade activities with Middle Eastern countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, etc.) and to create trade volume with other countries (such as Iran, Balkan Countries and Turkic Republics).
